of improvement. the fact is, talk radio continues to thrive. while moderate republics like john mccain and to some extent mitt romney continue to lose presidential elections. and while the tea party has backed some terrible candidates. richard murdock, todd akin and christine o'donnell, it also made the 2010 g.o.p. route possible. grass roots conservatives helped elect senators marco rubio in florida. ted crews in texas and this time deb fisher in that nebraska senate race. where is the evidence that proabortion or pro-gam gay marriage or pro-amnesty but fiscally conservative candidates are are the solution to the g.o.p.'s problem? moderates like scott brown and charlie summers just lost their senate races in massachusetts and maine. both blue states. would their type of republic have won in conservative red states? of course not. until more liberal republicans start winning their races, why should they dictate the terms of a new g.o.p. agenda? yes, republics, of course they need to attract more single women and latinos. but pandering isn't the answer. good policy and good politics is.
that failed. he didn't get as many of the mormon vote as john mccain did, governor. i mean -- >> -- i don't understand that. >> laura: we're beyond kind of niceties at this point. >> i'm still nice. >> laura: if you can't get the mormon vote in the same numbers as john mccain, something was really wrong with this campaign. and i like him very much. i think ann is delightful. i love the bushes. these people are wonderful people. but being wonderful and running a great campaign maybe are two different things sometimes. >> one of the problems that the conservatives have. they continue to want a perfect candidate and they are not going to get one. >> laura: sure. >> that's one of the reasons they don't get a perfect candidate well i'm not going to help anybody. when conservatives will give money and they will will actually give their energy and they will accept the fact that whatever candidate they support will have some flaws he won't be perfect. this, i think pushed to perfection ends up leading to anything but the -- you think that's what it was? a push to perfection we had major problems
more in this hour for our audience as well. up next, senator john mccain missed a briefing on the benghazi attack while holding a news conference. well, he slammed the president and susan rice over her potential nomination that doesn't exist at this point for secretary of state. meanwhile, mccain is now being criticized for slamming ambassador rice but supporting secretary of state condoleezza rice, despite the intelligence failures under her watch. >> that was an entirely different situation. >> plus, smackdown from the right. governor bobby jindal leads the republican backlash against mitt romney's excuse for not winning. why romney's claim of the president's, quote, gifts to blacks, latinos, women and young voters, might be an official hat hash tag fail. >> i don't think that represents where we are as a party and going as a party. >> new comments from the rnc about why romney really lost. we have new information from their official report, and guess what it's missing? the word "gifts." join our conversation on twitter. you can find us @tamronhall a and @newsnation. ♪
in the republican party, known. i'm not suggesting that john mccain was a racist but john mccain had no association of black people whatsoever. the press like mitt romney this year. i know they always try out some black people that facility i know. and his age career he had with his ascent toward all the things in terms of his history and john mccain's family comes from mississippi by john mccain had no association with black people whatsoever. so when he ran for the presidency in 2008, black people were not even on a radar. at the present obama got elected, could there isn't a not necessarily true belief by republicans that the african- american vote was no longer -- was basically off-limits. i believe the rise of publicly- expressed racist sentiments and the attitudes that go with them came from the fact that a lot of republicans decided black people are off limits. so we don't have to appeal to black people. karl rove into a dozen forethought," i know black people and i know there are lettuce. i know they don't like the marriage. let's go to ohio and go to churches and african-american leaders a
the edges. boy, running against and john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in those states. he did well in iowa. he overperformed. >> i'm guessing it is bigger in 2012 than in 2008. >> at the performance is a little bit overstated. dig into the data. it is not quite impressive as the polls might have suggested. i had to brag a little bit. i was having a fierce twitter debate over the nature of ohio. nate's model has predicted in this election and had a 49.6% chance to beat ohio in the electoral vote. the tipping state was colorado. where did romney's 47% remarks get him? 47% of the vote. >> we talk about how non-whites are growing, particularly among latinos. unions are shrinking. for the 6% of voters were from the union households. this ticket was only 18 percent. i do think that you are right. it will be more about the sun belt than the rest. >> non college white union members. this is pretty striking. >> let's have another question. in the front. >> you spoke about the long-term trends of declining voter turnout and increased polarization and the emotionalism of v
that is growing. there are many people in the republican party such as george w. bush and john mccain who put more politically on the line for comprehensive immigration reform more than many democrats if not most of them. i think there are folks in the party who can listen to things like that. there are ted cruz in texas for instance who is not for amnesty but knows the issue of immigration and border concerns. you have got jeff flake in arizona understand border issues. but i do think this border issue. promises, promises, promises. folks will be upset including white working class voters. martha: you think back to the moments along the way in these elections and when the turning points were. my mind goes back to marco rubio who was about to put forth some legislation that was very similar to what -- a policy that would literally came out of the lips of president obama days later. right before president obama put out his feeling that people who came under the age of 16 and those ramifications that he put out there, right before he did that marco rubio had this plan of his own. governor romney had
to stay. john mccain was criticized when he ran for president for his more open perspective on how to approach this problem. he didn't get anywhere with that. he lost his election as well. what are the lessons here. >> the first lesson is the president is not the only one who can evolve on an issue. martha: the president said he had evolved on the issue of gay marriage. >> i think it is a significant fire. a signal that maybe we should be open. this will come up in the next congress regardless. certainly at least tone has to be moderated if not policy. and i think that is an important part of reaching out to a new electorate that is growing. there are many people in the republican party such as george w. bush and john mccain who put more politically on the line for comprehensive immigration reform more than many democrats if not most of them. i think there are folks in the party who can listen to things like that. there are ted cruz in texas for instance who is not for amnesty but knows the issue of immigration and border concerns. you have got jeff flake in arizona understand bord
of the republican party. in 2004 george w. bush got 44% of the latino vote. four years later john mccain got 31%. now 27% for mitt romney. to be steadily losing votes in an expanding demographic is a recipe for failure. florida senator marco rubio, the son of cuban immigrants and a republican suggests the problem is both substantive. >> it's hard to make an argument to people that think that you want to deport their grandmother. >> decisive in 2012. 53% of the votes this year were cast by women who favored president obama by ten points. >> my wife is a democrat, and she was so close to voting for mitt romney, but then, you know, murdock and akin opened their mouths, and we sent them running back to the democratic party because they think we're nut where i. >> actually, married women tended favor mitt romney, but single women, a growing part of the population, went 3-1 for the president. >> i have just called president obama to congratulate him on his victory. >> republicans have two years until the midterm to try to shed a little of the old off the grand old party and reach out to a quickly cha
. libya. senator john mccain went off on it this morning. let me play that. >> you think the president misled us? >> i know he did. he didn't tell the truth to the american people at one time or another. >> how widely held a view do you think that is? i was a little bit surprised, frankly, to hear him put it so clearly, major. >> well, republicans do believe that there was an information gap and a flow gap that is irreconcilable with the known facts and what the administration was representing in the five or six days after the 9/11 attack on that sons lat facility in benghazi. now, one thing republicans will probably have to caution against is overdramatizing their sense of outrage and building a fact pattern that represents a genuine inquiry and not partisan accusations. the one thing that the white house has here is that it has the fact pattern and accountability and generally investigations succeed when you build a fact pattern gradually bit by bit and don't accuse things before you have an underlying fact basis for that. my guess is republicans as they sit and talk about this are g
states, republicans carried one. he basically one what john mccain won, plus indiana, which nobody considers a swing state, plus north carolina. you go one out of 11, then you have the senate tossup. republicans lost nine out of 10. i think senator cornyn and all the folks -- one of the more talented campaign committees i have ever seen. two cycles in a row, they have had the worst loss. when your party nominate people that are so exotic that they have little or no chance of winning general elections, that ought to be very winnable, that is not something campaign committee can do anything about. you have party bosses from washington dictating who are candidates are going to be, or do you allow yourself the diversity of a bunch of wackos? >> a whole bunch of these republican governors were elected in 2010, which was against barack obama, the stimulus, the takeovers. no matter how partisan the state, they will send the opposite party to the state mansion, but they will not send them to d.c. even bob ehrlich one in maryland, and democrats get elected governor -- sullivan in wyoming, s
will be against the hawks i think on a number of occasions. we did a story recently about him and we had john mccain talk about how much -- how much he respected and although they did not always see eye to eye. but i think the foreign relations panel in both chambers, sense, i guess, the 1960's, just as not had as much as an impact on what the president does as it used to. if kerry becomes the secretary of state, i guess you end up taking what he was hoping to do -- and at the administration level. but it reiterates what i am saying, which is you can't do much until you are in the administration about these kinds of things. >> i think you made a good point. if i could go back to bob corker also. he is kind of this fascinating character to me. in some ways he is almost non partisan and the way he deals with a lot of people. it may be due to his background as mayor of chattanooga. instead of going to the republican national convention in tampa over the summer, he went to the middle east. some people will use these as publicity stunts -- look at me, i am substantive while others are getting drun
like john mccain and hatch have to run far to their right just to keep their offices. this is very perilous for our country. i'm looking for us to go back where you had guys like ronald reagan and tip o'neill who reached across the aisle. >> friends in the newt gingrich second term worked very well together. >> i think we have the right president for that. but we need the right leadership coming out of congress that's going to rise up to the challenge and bring our nation together. most of us in the country are not on the margin. most of us, however we identify, republican or democrat, we have so much more in common than we do apart. that's where we hope that our government will follow where the people are. >> that's so true. cory booker, great to see you. better luck on the ground. appreciate you coming in. >>> coming up next, how the republican party lost a battle. we'll go head to head on that question. questions from bing elections. do you know where your polling place is? maybe somewhere around my house. mine's just, right over that way. well you can find out exactly where it
ted cruz hails from canada. they join michael bennett and john mccain who were both born outside the united states. sduf a political trivia question? e e-mail us. we'll be right back. melons!!! oh yeah!! well that was uncalled for. folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy, ronny? happier than gallagher at a farmers' market. get happy. get geico. chances are, you're not made of money, so don't overpay for motorcycle insurance. geico, see how much you could save. i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i got a medicare supplement insurance plan.

recently about him and we had john mccain talk about how much -- how much he respected and although they did not always see eye to eye. but i think the foreign relations panel in both chambers, sense, i guess, the 1960's, just as not had as much as an impact on what the president does as it used to. if kerry becomes the secretary of state, i guess you end up taking what he was hoping to do -- and at the administration level. but it reiterates what i am saying, which is you can't do much until you are in the administration about these kinds of things. >> i think you made a good point. if i could go back to bob corker also. he is kind of this fascinating character to me. in some ways he is almost non partisan and the way he deals with a lot of people. it may be due to his background as mayor of chattanooga. instead of going to the republican national convention in tampa over the summer, he went to the middle east. some people will use these as publicity stunts -- look at me, i am substantive while others are getting drunk. but at the same time, he is a pretty sharp guy. during the dod
to the poll. mitt romney got fewer than john mccain and still came within two points. the technology included the so-called system some of you have maybe read about in the last couple of days which was the republican get-out-the-vote technology to ensure people are getting to the polls. i'm told on election day it had so many hits around the country as it should have from people saying this person voted and this person didn't. but if that was under attack it closed down. so for those of you hear from again that technology field to enter some politics, we republicans want to talk to you. [laughter] we need some help. the democratic system was quite effective at micro targeting and i've heard lots of anecdotes and one this morning that you will love that somebody gets a call that's a democrat from law school and was we see that you voted and disinformation is publicly available. was it you that voted 2:00 on election day but your sister hasn't. can you call her. that's the level at that point. that led to a turnout effort that in the end makes the difference. the increase in turnout among the b
was underperforming john mccain among hispanics, he actually won more of the african-american vote than john mccain did. now, he won 6% instead of 4%, but he actually got up to like 8% or 9% among 18 to 29-year-old african-americans which is the group that's hardest hit by unemployment. again, these are tiny numbers. >> mitt romney underperformed a light post with hispanics. don't get started on that. >> a jack kent republican would be very welcome right now to create some sense of competition. we have 10% or 11% of the country right now in free fall and neither party taking it seriously. that's bad. >> it's not as if the republicans didn't work for the african-american and latino vote, they actively rejected it. that was the sense i got. they used it as a way to run up the score with white voters and really created a corrosive toxic discourse that i think hurt everybody. >> what's your unsolicited advice today, ana? >> well, my unsolicited advice is for -- >> hold it up. >> how do you say that in spanish? an extra exclamation point. >> say yeb or bushito. he will respond to either in miami. in ful
over john mccain in 2008. so they wanted to lay out a strategy, get all the people to the polls. and so with the deepest is they invested very early on, a lot of money in state offices. the republicans scoffed at that at the very beginning, saying it was a waste of money and just wait until the end. and that is one of the big reasons the president was able to win. talk to multiple people who went and did fieldwork in ohio on the ground operating as volunteers who work in washington and work out for the final weeks. they said they were able, because they didn't have to drive so far between the fatalities to the offices to get, whether that was registration forms or getting people their checklist or whatever technology they were using, that made him a difference because they could talk to more people. these are hundreds of thousands of door knobs and phone calls they were able to do. so that's a big thing. then when you look at the exit polls, there's a couple things beyond the changing face of the nation, a changing attitude of the nation. when you think about what happened on election n
candidate had been maybe in my lifetime. or certainly in the last 30 years. john mccain almost lost the republican primary season in 2008 because he was in favor of comprehensive immigration reform. he had to double back. they're going to have to get out of that. they're going to have to be able to say there is a different path forward, not just to citizenship, but to dealing with immigration as an issue, which is complicated, understandably. but start with more actually free market type of solutions and say, hey, look, why are we micromanaging the number of immigrants from each and every country? why don't we expand the number of visas? start with that, certainly. start shutting down people who use immigration as a very passionate and very irrational issue from which to sort of project all of their fears. >> we are already starting to see and hear some of that from folks on the right. let's switch gears and talk about this year's electorates. according to exit polls, there's been a steady decline of white voters. in 2008, they made out 80%. in 2004, you see it go down. in 2012, we'
did in getting voters to the polls. and if i got fewer votes than john mccain in ohio still came within two points. the technology included the so-called orca system. many of you have read about that in the last couple of days, which was the republican get out the vote technology to ensure that we were targeting people getting to the polls. i'm told on election day actually got so many hits around the country as it should have from people saying this person voted this person didn't vote, they thought it was under attack and close down. so for those of you here from again detect elegies field and with interest in politics, we republicans want to talk to you. we need some help. the democratic system i think is called gordon was actually quite effective at mike retargeting. i heard one this morning it was. somebody get the call who is a democrat, who is in law school and police chief, we see you have voted. the information is publicly available. it's at 2:00 on election day, but your sister at tulane has not voted. could you call her? that is the level at which they were dealing, wh
dole wasn't the greatest candidate in 1996. and john mccain wasn't the greatest candidate in 2008. republicans still figured out how to win some senate seats that year. this year the republican brand was ravaged. and they paid for it whether they were moderates like tommy thompson, whether they were tea partiers, like the two whose names i never have to mention again, whether it was self-funding candidates like linda mcmahon, they all got slaughtered. >> big goose egg. >> their record in the dozen or so competitive senate races was as bad as mitt romney's was in the nine battleground states. i mean, they won about one or two of the really competitive races. >> and you know what john cornyn could have done about that, running the republican senatorial committee? nothing. nothing. because we so savaged our brand through the primary process. you know, when one week you had herman cain leading the field, sarah palin would be leading the field, rick perry would be leading the field, these people that had a hard time communicating on television that seemed to be marginal political figur
the edges. and maybe running against john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in the other states and extremely well in wisconsin and iowa over performing even by the margin in the change of the electorate that he did in 2012. so, -- >> i'm guessing the delta of between the working class whites and nationally was bigger and 12 than 08. this and i think obama's performance in the west velte is a little bit overstated by the election polls and once you begin to the the that it isn't quite as expected as the pre-election polls might have suggested. i have to drag a little but i was kind of falling asleep on the decision desk in new york and a fierce twitter debate about the nature of the early turnout data in ohio and in a ohio a closer state than the poles were giving him credit for and the model projected the tipping point stayed in this election had a 39 wind 6% chance of being ohio and actually ohio was still more than the national average. the tipping point once again was colorado. one other than come the attacks that you referred to on absolutely true what d
